Star Trek Online Summer Festival

As they say in Game of Thrones, "Summer is coming." Or something like that. In any case, Perfect World Entertainment is taking those words to heart with a bevy of fun summer events across all its free-to-play titles. Sorry, Neverwinter fans, there's no dwarf-tossing scheduled.

Speaking of Neverwinter, the festivities kick off with the Protector's Jubilee (June 20-27), followed closely behind by the Summer Festival (July 6-27). Star Trek Online sends its players to Risa for fun in the sun June 8 through July 20, while the heroes of Champions Online take part in the Patriot's Celebration June 29 through July 14.

Want more? Perfect World International has no fewer than five events spread out over the coming months, while Swordsman has four. Forsaken World rounds out the list with two events, the second of which runs until the first of September. Here's the full list of all the festivals in PWI's summer of fun:

Protector’s Jubilee (June 20 – 27)
Available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation®4

The city of Neverwinter will be decked out with confetti and festive decorations to celebrate the game’s fourth anniversary! During Protector’s Jubilee, adventurers can celebrate Neverwinter’s latest milestone by completing special quests for rewards throughout the Sword Coast. This year’s festivities will yield brand new incentives for players, including the chance to earn a Jubilee Unicorn, Shadow Dragon Throne, Firebreathing emote or furniture for the Great Hall. Plus, Lord Neverember will reward all of the city’s brave adventurers with free giveaways throughout the week.

Summer Festival (July 6– 27)
Available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation®4

It’s time to celebrate Sune, the goddess of beauty, during Neverwinter’s annual Summer Festival. Adventurers can participate in this hallowed tradition by competing in classic contests, including the Summer Feast, Troll Fight, Water Battle and Sahha. New rewards have been added to the store, including the Fungal Flail Snail and Summer Flail Snail mounts, plus the “Sit and Relax” emote. Guilds can celebrate summer solstice by participating in a feast held in their Great Hall.

Star Trek Online
Lohlunat Festival (June 8 – July 20)
Available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation®4

It’s time for captains to take a break from saving the universe and escape to Risa for some much needed rest and relaxation. During Star Trek Online’s annual Lohlunat Festival, players will explore the luxurious Summer Resort, where they will cruise around on floaters and complete challenges for rewards, including pets, costumes, powerboards and Lohlunat Prize Vouchers. For those playing on Xbox One and PS4, these vouchers can be redeemed for Vorgon Xyfius Heavy Escort [T6], while PC players can earn the new Vorgon Ryn’Kodan Carrier [T6]. In addition, PC players can participate in a new event called “The Biathlon,” which combines hoverboard racing with floater flying.

Champions Online
Patriot’s Celebration (June 29 – July 14)

In celebration of Canada Day and Independence Day, Champions Online offers heroes a way to rep the countries they love with the return of the Patriot’s Celebration.
